Creating Test Sessions 4 Districts were able to create sessions during the PreID upload If your district did not create test sessions during the PreID upload, then you will need to create test sessions at the school Districts or schools may choose to set up test sessions in the way that best suits their needs (by test group, by test day, or by test administration) Large sessions (more than 100 students) are not recommended as it may slow down processes in PearsonAccess and TestNav

Starting sessions 22 A test session must be started in PearsonAccess before students in the session can log in and begin taking the test It is recommended that a session be started no earlier than the day before the test session is scheduled to begin

(The student cannot resume the test unless authorized by the school assessment coordinator or the test administrator, if applicable.) ResumedThe student has been authorized to resume the test.

FCAT 2.0 Tests – End of Session 1 24 Follow this sequence for FCAT 2.0 two-session tests: 1.At the end of Session 1, students will exit the test on the Seal Code screen. 2.Students will remain in the same session in PearsonAccess and must be resumed for Session 2. DO NOT MARK STUDENTS COMPLETE OR STOP THE SESSION IN PEARSONACCESS AFTER SESSION 1. 3.For Session 2, give students the same authorization tickets and the seal code to sign back into the test (The only exception is if students are moved to a make-up session in PearsonAccess). 4.Students submit their test at the end of Session 2.
Stopping sessions 25 After all students have completed the test and submitted their responses, stop the session Before stopping the session, make sure that: All students in Ready status have been removed from the session.
